CEREC – innovations non-stop November 08, 2013 14.00-15.00; November 09, 09.30 – 10.30
Aesthetics by sustainable glass-ceramic chips, fillings, and crowns mostly lacks on a one-stop solution for the patients. Even chair-side solutions like former CEREC devices needs highly skilled experts using it successfully for the precise and fast shaping of ceramics blocks. In contrary, today an easy and intuitive use of the CEREC CAD-software shorten the learning curve to some hours and even works in case of a not daily designing of restorations. In other words, complex fillings and a challenging occlusion can be solved by some clicks, too. The powder-free working intraoral scanning camera (Omnicam®) facilitates the work-flow and additionally optimizes the patients’ convenience. However, the milling post-process needs an increased expense to control the tooth preparation. Hackly preparation lines, undercuts and too small removal of tooth tissue have to be avoided to get well-fitting restorations – a decisive prerequisite to fulfilling the promise of a one-stop solution. An innovative solution is now launched by a fully automatically working software-tool checking the preparation and identifying the spots for an optimization (Prepcheck®). Dentists comparing this new CEREC feature as a 3D-mirror showing you immediately details which can’t be milled precisely. This further important innovation jump leads to an ultimate user friendliness and an elimination of the error rate.
CEREC meets Galileos – creating smart work-flows November 08, 2013 15.00-16.00; November 09, 10.30-11.30
Implantology starts fifty years ago which its main indication to retain full dentures at lower edentulous jaws.
Today the implant placement after a single tooth loss is the most used therapy concept replacing more and more the alternative three-unit bridge. In case of sufficient residual bone at a healed site or in case of an immediate placement in a fresh extraction socket, a minimally invasive therapy concept is possible. A surgical guide is recommended to reduce risks for malpositioning during implant insertion. Additionally, repeated abutment removal can contribute to esthetic complications by the vertical soft-tissue loss. Therefore the “one abutment one time” and the “one crown one-time” concepts are preferable. However, a lot of details within the logistic and communicative interaction between the surgeon, prosthodontist and dental technician produce as a side effect a high complexity of the workflow.
Especially the template for guided surgery is manufactured by a dental lab or a production center for such items, avoiding mostly a one-stop-solution for the patient. The concept “CEREC meets Galileos” offers a solution. It is an innovative process optimization combining the features of a cone beam CT based guided surgery with the advantages of a chairside system able to produce the surgical template, a CAD/CAM customized two-piece abutment and a temporary or final crown in office within one appointment.
At the completion of this course, participants will be able to:
Recognize that a minimally-invasive treatment concept for an implant-borne single crown is possible by a guide surgery template produced in-office by CEREC.
Understand that a virtual patient facilitates the planning of implant placement.
